The Wrap reports that Harvey Weinstein promised that an upcoming film starring Meryl Streep that will make the National Rifle Association “wish they weren’t alive” during an interview with Howard Stern earlier this week, and now it has a title. A Weinstein Co. spokeswoman told TheWrap on Thursday that the film will be called “The Senator’s Wife.” “I don’t think we need guns in this country,” Weinstein told Stern on Wednesday. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.” “I shouldn’t say this, but I’ll tell it to you, Howard,” Weinstein added. “I’m going to make a movie with Meryl Streep, and we’re going to take this head-on. And they’re going to wish they weren’t alive after I’m done with them.” Weinstein described the film as a “big movie like a ‘Mr. Smith Goes to Washington,’” which he hopes will make audiences think: “Gun stocks — I don’t want to be involved in that stuff. It’s going to be like crash and burn.” Thanks to everybody for the heads-up.

    I think Ms Streep might want to rethink this decision. If the film is going to be as critical and as controversial of the NRA as Mr. Weinstein threatens, it could alienate a lot of her fans. I suggest she read the “Open letter to Meryl Streep” on the Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership website, written by L. Neil Smith. Mr. Smith is the Senior Editorial consultant for the web site and the author of 33 books. He is also the publisher of The Libertarian Enterprise in it’s 17 year online. His views echo mine and is much better at addressing the issue than I could ever begin to.

    I am not very happy about this as there is bound to be a lot of controversy about this type of film and Harvey Weinstein is himself rather a controversial character. I hope it doesn’t soil Meryl’s reputation – she is always so popular as a rule.
